Whiteboard Meetings and Collaboration

We are hearing it more than ever before. Business owner and managers are getting frustrated with the tools available to work with. We understand the frustration and want to offer some ideas on what you can do to help remove the frustration.

Your typical meeting consists of a bunch of people sitting around a conference table sharing ideas.  Many times these ideas are put onto a whiteboard or glassboard, which is a great way to share and generate ideas.  The facilitator puts an idea on the board and then everyone adds to it, interjects ideas and the process builds.

Sometimes the whiteboard doesn’t exist so you use a paper flipchart instead.  The paper docs then get ripped off and taped to the wall. This happens a lot when you are working in a remote location where, conference center, hotel room or meeting room.

The bottom line is that the ideas are STUCK on either the whiteboard or the paper.  Usually someone is charged with copying everything down while the meeting is occurring (which means they aren’t participating) or transcribing the notes after the meeting is over (which means a delay in getting details to the participants).  Or, and we love this one the most, you take pictures of the stuff on the wall to try to capture it.

This means production is slowed, information flow is minimal, time spent in the meeting does not translate to progress.  Or if  you are taking pictures, details are missed because you can’t tell what was written.

It’s time to stop all of this craziness and get more work done.  Making the results of the meetings turn into productivity can be a HUGE boost to the company.  And, it’s not that hard.

Check out eBeam Edge with Capture Pack.

eBeam Edge is famous for easily converting wall spaces into high powered collaboration environments.  Edge allows you to run your computer from any projected surface or any connected monitor/tv by turning this surface into a touch screen by using the supplied wireless pen/stylus.

But, what you may not be aware of is the Capture Pack accessory.  With Capture Pack you turn your

  • Whiteboard
  • Glass board
  • Paper Flipchart

into an electronic copyboard.  This means that everything you draw onto these spaces is transmitted to the program on your computer.

Using Capture Pack eliminates the need for a dedicated person to copy what is put on the board.  It eliminates the need to have someone transcribe the notes later.  And it eliminates the need to take pictures of the board.

Using Capture Pack allows you to manipulate the pages after you create them.  You can add text, additional drawings, copy pages, duplicate images, change the images drawn.

When you are finished then save the document into up to nine other formats including PDF and JPEG.

And if this isn’t enough . . . record your sessions as they are occurring.  Record all of the images as they are being drawn and record all of the sound that can be picked up by your computers microphone – or add an external mike.

But wait, there’s more.  Capture comes with a meeting function like its big brother Scrapbook.  With the meeting you can have participants located somewhere else in the world watching and participating in your whiteboarding session.  You choose whether they can interact and add to the board, or simply see what is being done.

So, Capture is a very powerful accessory that lets you solve lots of problems in getting the information out to those that need it quickly.

I hope that this was useful for you.  Find out more about Capture at www.eBeamRocks.com.  You will also find helpful videos there also.
